My how time flies. We’re already up to our second 2015 US regional coffee competition, and it’s still only 2014! The hits just keep coming, and this year that’s all happening over on our shiny new SprudgeLive portal, and of course at @SprudgeLive on Twitter, where we will be documenting the 2015 Big Central Coffee Competitions this Friday through Sunday, live on-site from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Our coverage is being brought to you thanks to direct support from event hosts and Sprudge partners Wilbur Curtis Company and Cafe Imports.

We are also pleased to announce that Square will be supporting all of our US Coffee Competition and World Barista Championship coverage this year as our 2015 Season Sponsor.
